Our school is really trying to get into the STEM way of thinking in all areas. We will be sending home monthly STEM Home Challenges starting this month (September). The idea is that students can take an easy to find item (pencil, cardboard paper towel roll, paper plate, etc.) and they create something (anything) out of it! The students can use any additional materials as well! We are planning to display these creations in the display case near our front office area. Looking for something STEM to send home to your students, just click on this link to go to the packet!
Here is a peek at one of the Home Challenges!
Wouldn't you love to see what your kids could come up with each month? As an incentive, we are giving every kid who participates a STEM-inspired pencil! You can order personalized pencils from Oriental Trading Company for a great price!
Our first set of pencils say: Look Out! Future Engineer
Click here for the link to the pencils! There are many different quantities available!
Do you have any other ideas to connect home and school with STEM projects? We would love to hear about them in the comments!
